Halloween...State Park Style

What a fun day we had on Saturday.

My parents and several of their friends went camping at Chain O' Lakes State Park over the weekend. Seth was going to go up on Friday...but since it was cold and rained ALL DAY...he stayed home and all 4 of us went up on Saturday. My brother and his family were REALLY brave and set up tents on Saturday. So...the my whole family was up there.

It was a whole Halloween FESTIVAL up there... all kinds of festivities...hay rides, pumpkin decorating, costume parades and contests, ghost walks...AND...trick or treating. It was so fun...walking through all the campsites...trick or treating. It was such a fun atmosphere...and many of the sites went all out and decorated to the hilt. It was only an hour...but since the sites are so close...Seth came home with more candy than ever!

We were quite impressed and with all my parent's friends, their grandkids, plus the cousins...Seth had plenty of friends to play with. Plus...some friends brought pumpkins and we carved pumpkins on site. Andy, Grant and I chickened out and came home Saturday evening, since there wasn't room in the camper for all the kids plus us (and we were too much of whimps to tent it) Seth got to stay and continued to have a wonderful time.

It was a fun way to spend a chilly, but sunny Halloween. Can't wait for next year!
